LG’s current flagship device has made quite a name for itself over the past several months. The Optimus LTE, according to LG, has been sold over a million times in the markets in which it is available.
The LG Optimus LTE originally launched in October 2011 in Korea and sold 8,500 times on its first day of availability. In its first three months on the Korean market, it sold over 600,000 times setting the tone for its popularity in markets around the world. Despite any specific statistics referencing how well it sold in the United States, we do know that it is available through AT&T and Verizon Wireless. On AT&T, it is known as the LG Nitro HD and on Verizon as the LG Spectrum. On Bell in Canada it is known as the Bell Optimus Eye.
Wherever the device is sold, it retains several important specs. Since it is a flagship, you can expect a large screen, snappy processor, high-resolution camera, and fast network connectivity. More specifically, it contains a 4.5 inch True HD display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 8MP rear facing camera, 4G LTE connectivity, Android 2.3, and 1GB of RAM.
While this is a great milestone for LG, we suspect that the company is already hard at work on its next flagship device that could possibly see a Mobile World Congress debut.
